Size: 4 ounces
Features: Wild
Season: Mid December-Mid March
Origin: Oregon

Oregon black truffles (Leucangium Carthusianum) are slightly larger and less common than Oregon white truffles. They have a pungent, musky-earthy-pineapple aroma and flavor.
 
Oregon black truffles are most commonly found amongst the roots of Douglas fir trees that are twelve or more years old. Nestled 6-12 inches beneath the layer of needles that collects under each tree, the truffles enjoy a symbiotic relationship with their trees and (if carefully harvested) reappear in the same place year after year. Our expert foragers return to the same secret patches every year to harvest these wild delicacies.
 
Oregon truffles do not have the same quality, depth or complexity of flavor that their European counterparts do. They are however a far more economical alternative and a good choice for those seeking to try fresh truffles for the first time.


Your Oregon truffles will be delicious when you first receive them, but for even better flavor store them in your fridge, check them every day watching for them to “sweat” and become more aromatic. At this point they are ripe and at peak flavor.

Oregon Truffle Storage & Handling Tips


The awesome aroma of the truffle can be weakened by heat, so that's why we recommend adding truffles late in the cooking process or at the end as a finishing ingredient. Simply shave them raw over your favorite dish like risotto, mashed potatoes, pasta, cheese pizza or even scrambled eggs.
